We had a fun Halloween, we went to the Bakers house and went trick or treating. Here is Peyton hanging out with uncle mitchell the cowboy.

Here is my handsome husband. I'm not sure exactly what he was for halloween, but he looked good. Go Jr!

Back to the cute pictures. Here is Taylor the witch, Peyton the black cat, and Jack the spider.

My little spider won't hold still for very long, he gets into everything.

Here are the three maggots in their halloween shirts that grandma bought them. Thankyou grandma!

This was Taylor in her first Halloween parade at school. I went to her class and helped out with the Halloween party and she had a lot of fun.

We are so excited. TJ's brother Torrey came to visit us and he brought TJ a Clemson Snugi for his birthday! We are so relieved that we can sit and watch TV or snuggle on the couch with a blanket on and still have our hands free to use the remote or hold a book. We can even keep our blanket on while we play mario kart or rockband on the wii, How Awesome! Thanks Torrey, we loved having you here.

Happy 6 months Jack!

Here are some fun pictures of baby Jack. We can't beleive that he is 6 months!

Here he is on the day he was born with his big sister Taylor

He loves hanging out with the uncles (sometimes he feels likes he's around the girls a little too much) Here he is with Uncle Mitchell.

Jack loves Peyton. She always plays with him. Sometimes the playing gets a little rough, but she usually makes him smile.

He has been so fun to have in our family, I can already tell that he has a fun personality.

What an awesome first football season! We are glad it's living up to the hype! TJ and I were telling him how awesome it was, but we didn't know that his first BYU game would be BYU beating #3 Oklahoma! Go Cougars!

Kindergarten Here We Come!

Taylor is so excited for school! You can probabally tell by the cheerleader pose.

She looked so cute, I love that I could have worn the exact same outfit and my hair crimped just like Taylor when I was in kindergarten.

Here's the cute little sister, she is sad that Taylor is going to be going to school everyday but I am excited to have some mommy-Peyton time.

Here's Taylor getting off the bus for the first time! She was actually doing a full on sprint back to the house!

Peyton missed Taylor a lot and ran to meet her when she came off the bus. At dinner tonight TJ was asking Taylor if she had a guy or girl bus driver. Taylor (in her Taylor way) said "It was a guy bus driver, He was kinda black with shortish hair". TJ then proceeded to ask her if it was Carlos Boozer to which she rolled her eyes and said, "no dad, it was not Carlos Boozer"

The next Mia Hamm?

Taylor has now officially started her career in the sports world. She had her first soccer game this past Saturday and she did a good job making her parents proud by scoring a goal in the game. She is playing with one of her best friends which makes for a powerful one-two punch! In her age group they practice for the first half hour and then play four 5 minute quarters after the practice. Now we get to be the parents that provide the capri suns and orange slices at the games. How fun is that!! We will keep everyone updated on the season and let you know what college scouts are coming out looking at her and her soccer skills.

The night before the 4th we celebrated with the Baker's and the Lucus's. We had a BBQ at the Bakers house, let the kids play, and did fireworks. Here is Taylor and Easton playing in a tent in the back yard.

Here I am with my dirty faced two year old.

Peyton and Taylor were in heaven playing in the tent. They were pretending it was there doctor's office and they would take you in there and ask you what was hurting, then they would brush it off with this little broom they had. I think that Easton just liked being in the Tent with the girls, and the parents liked it because it kept them busy and out of trouble.

Here is my 2 men! Arn't they cute?

Jack and Jolie really loved hanging out together. Isn't Jolie the most beautiful baby?

Here is Peyton and Taylor ready for the fireworks! They were so excited!

Here is Mitchell holding Jolie and getting ready for the fireworks (he was almost more excited than the girls)

here are the girls and Easton with their sparklers! They had so much fun.

Here is Papa holding Jack before the fireworks. The babies didn't like the loud noises that the fireworks made. If it would've just been the lights without the noise they would have loved it.

Happy 4th of July!

The Beach

We went to the beach in June and it was Jacks first visit to the beach. He just sat in his beach chair all day....

Just kidding, he slept most of the time! I don't know if it was the sounds or the breeze, but everytime we went he slept for a few hours. He is definately a beach bumb!

The girls loved the beach like always! They played in the sand for hours each day. They also love jumping waves and looking for sea shells. They never get board at the beach. So with Jack sleeping most the time and the girls loving it I even got to relax a little.

We loved that the Bakers were there. Here are the uncles jumping waves with the girls. It was nice to have extra people to play with the girls because TJ couldn't come.

Here's the beautiful Huntington Pier. It brings back all the fun memories that I had at the beach as a child. The beach is always the best vacation.

Here is Aunt Kenzie with Peyton, after a long day at the beach she fell asleep while Kenzie was holding her. Jack just woke up from his long nap and was chillin in my beach chair.

It was fun that we got to hang out with Uncle Bret and Aunt Whitney because they live in California and we don't get to see them as much as the aunts and uncles. Here is Bret holding Jack at the Markham's house.

We were really excited to see Aunt Wendy, she lives in California and we don't see her as much as we would like but we want her to know that we love her! My girls always love to see her! Here she is holding Jack, I just love this picture!

We had a good time at the beach and we missed dad but we had a lot of fun! Thanks for letting us go dad and working so hard while we were gone. We love you!

Jack's Blessing Day

We are so grateful for all our family that was able to make it to this special day for Jack! Jack was so good for his blessing..mainly that he was happy during it..A big change from when we blessed Peyton with her screaming/crying while being blessed. The little suit that Jack wore was the same suit that Mitchell was blessed in about 20 years ago..hence the 80's look to it. Thanks again for everyone that came and helped out!!
